I think Dr. Andrews is an excellent surgeon. I was in constant pain before knee replacement. He is very kind, and I have complete trust in him.

Dr Andrews did what he called a simple mcl on my right knee. I was not given therapy, and was cleared to back to work after 5 days with no restrictions. Several follow up appointments for pain with doctor looking at my knee and saying it "looks ok". Drew fluid out of knee and did not send it for...more

I have gone to Dr. Andrews for many years. He has always been honest and kind and straightforward with me about my conditions. I had a knee replacement in 2013 and the other one done in 2016. He really cares about his work and especially his patients. I will always go to him.

mamy years ago, Dr. Andrews exreacted a 16 penny ring-shank nail, fired all the way in my rt knee by a careless nail gun operater coming dn a ladder, we no permanent damage,.....on the contrary, he told me after that he had also removed some calcifaction build-up while he was in there.
